When it comes to your newest Social Secretary, Alex Beeston, looks can be deceiving. While he appears to be a timid twelve-year-old, he is anything but. When he’s not romancing, he’s running, or cross-training, because he has one of the most injury-riddled careers in Harey history. The source of these injuries is unknown, but extensive research has conclusively shown repeated scrape marks across his knees and shins. Experts believe these to originate from falling for Maya, a prominent Harey, but a scientifically proven conclusion has not yet been established.
Don’t let his slender physique fool you, the boy can move, coming home with the victory in the 2023 Fresher’s 5km in a time of 15:03, accompanied by a blistering kick that even the renowned fast-finisher Tom Spencer would be proud of. Furthermore, the man can EAT. On September training camp he single-handedly saw off a portion of pasta that was originally cooked for six individuals. Some believe this is due to his incredible appetite and desire to fuel his athletics, others see it as linked to his emotional episode that occurred approximately ten minutes beforehand, which saw him jump through a window to escape other Hareys seeking to comfort him.
Nevertheless, there’s no disputing that Alex Beeston forms the bedrock of the Hareys in 2023, and the man has many a trick up his sleeve when it comes to interesting social events. It is more than a privilege to have him on the committee.
A busy businesswoman (Women’s Vice Club Captain) too.
A man of many talents (Men’s Vice Club Captain) too.
It goes without saying that Amber is a well-rounded and naturally talented athlete – from cross country to steeplechase to half marathons to hurdles, she is an experienced runner, to say the least. The half marathon saw Amber running the cliffs of Brighton and hills of the South Downs instead of intense revision. Extreme procrastination, you may suggest, and you’d be wright. However, how much she actually runs is a mystery as her training is kept very secret.
Among her most commendable athletic achievements was her last-minute call-up for the varsity 400m hurdles. Despite the desperation of the captain to try and find anyone else, she had a good run and blames this for her major loss in the steeplechase in the afternoon. Rumour has it that Amber can also pole vault but the pole vaulting squad wasn’t as desperate as the hurdles team.
Her chat and encouragement in runs and training sessions along with her commitment to varsity and annual dinners, means her place in the social sec squad is well deserved. But if you then count the number of nights out Amber has in Cambridge you may think she’s overqualified for the job and there are serious worries that some of her socials may get out of hand.
Being only a stone’s throw from SJP, Amber’s time management is atrocious – some of us run/cycle for 15 minutes to arrive at 7:20 runs yet Amber consistently breaks the 3 minute rule and has been left behind on more runs than she would care to let on.
Amber is a NatSci and keeps quiet about her academic endeavours contrary to common practice of some Hareys from said department.
